On The House: A Pivotal Pittsburgh Restaurant Prepares to Close

Jul 16, 2015


Salt of the Earth opened in Pittsburgh’s Garfield neighborhood in 2010, and it was unlike any restaurant the city had seen before. The menu was adventurous and ever-changing, the minimalist design was warm and the high-end food belied its location in one of the city’s poorer communities. Recently the architect-owners announced Salt would close Aug. 1 so they could focus solely on their architectural practice. 

In this segment of On The House, a look at how Salt helped shift the industry in Pittsburgh, as it closes its doors.
